  • 'g' vraag

    Hoe gaan dit. Ek is van die Verenigde State van Amerika. Ek het vraag: Is die 'g' in die woord 'jag' dieselfde as in die woord 'groot' of in die woord 'bang' ?

    The 'g' in 'jag' and 'groot' have a more gutteral sound, whereas in 'bang' where it has been combined with an 'n' it is a softer sound.

    Basically 'bang' (meaning scared) would be pronounced the same as the English word 'bung' (as in don't bung up the system).

    Hope that helps...
    Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose' ...

        Stop using the word "gutter" when you describe Afrikaans.
